Collaboration between Rem Koolhaas and Bruce Mau. Edited by Jennifer Sigler. Photographs by Hans Werlemann.

From the publisher: "This massive book is a novel about architecture. Conceived by Rem Koolhaas -- author of Delirious New York -- and Bruce Mau -- designer of Zone -- as a free-fall in the space of the typographic imagination, the book's title, Small, Medium, Large, Extra-Large, is also its framework: projects and essays are arranged according to scale. The book combines essays, manifestoes, diaries, fairy tales, travelogues, a cycle of meditations on the contemporary city, with work produced by Kookhaas's Office for Metropolitan Architecture over the past twenty years. This accumulation of words and images illuminates the condition of architecture today -- its splendors and miseries -- exploring and revealing the corrosive impact of politics, context, the economy, globalization -- the world.
